Webster University, a worldwide institution, ensures high-quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence.
Our vision is to be a premier U.S.-based international university setting a distinct standard for global education. This vision is built on a foundation of excellence in teaching and enhanced by an international perspective that fosters dialogue, respect and understanding across boundaries and between peoples.
The educational endeavors in support of this vision are meeting the needs and enriching a global mix of learners within an ever-increasing network of students desiring a U.S. education in multiple parts of the world. The institution is committed to offering these students a distinct personal experience and building the resources required to achieve this vision. The actions of the institution are shaped by our core values.
Celebrating A Century of Academic Excellence
In 1915, the Sisters of Loretto had a bold vision of establishing a university that would admit and educate only women. Opening with five students, the institution’s first graduating class totaled just two women.
Today our main campus looks quite different than it did more than a century ago — and even different from when it was renamed Webster University in 1983.
Now, the University engages thousands of individuals living and working worldwide, honoring the Sisters of Loretto’s legacy in the pursuit of academic excellence, equality and global citizenship.
Accreditations and Academic Quality Assurance
Webster University carries full institutional accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HLC is the highest-level accrediting agency for universities based in the United States’ north-central region.
We’ve maintained this accreditation since 1925, and this institutional accreditation applies to all locations where the University offers programs worldwide. Therefore, students at Webster Athens earn the same degree as their American peers in the United States.
The George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology is proud to be one of only five percent of the world’s business schools to have earned specialized accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) for BS, BA, MBA, MS and doctoral programs in the Business and Management departments.
ACBSP offers programs, services and an accreditation process uniquely focused on teaching excellence and student learning outcomes. Accredited schools are required to go through a rigorous peer review every 10 years to maintain their accreditation.
The Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs of the Hellenic Republic
Webster Athens has been accredited/licensed by the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs of the Hellenic Republic to operate in Hellas [Greece] under License Number: 127051/K1/01-08-2016 [Government Gazette 2585/B’/22.08.2016].
According to law 4093/2012 and subsequent regulations [Government Gazettes: 229/19.11.12, 3324/12.12.12 and 258/08.12.2014], degrees awarded for programs of studies by colleges that are accredited by international organizations (including HLC, Webster’s accreditation body), are eligible for recognition of professional equivalency to degrees awarded by the Greek standard system of higher education.
Studying abroad allows students to fully immerse themselves in a new culture and language, as well as new ways of thinking. The decision to study abroad can be one of the most positive life-changing experiences one can make. Students returning home after their time abroad exhibit an enhanced sense of self-confidence and are ultimately better equipped for life after university.
Our University’s main campus is in Webster Groves, located in St. Louis, Missouri. The campus is set in a sprawling park and offers state-of-the-art amenities and facilities. There are additional locations and sites in 22 states and 50 cities.
Webster Vienna Private University is in the Austrian capital center, in the beautiful historical Palais Wenkheim, which the city renovated in 2014 and transformed into modern learning facilities.
